Poem # 13

LOST IN A CORN MAZE

~

Corn husks rustle, left and right…

Forsaken on this cold, dark night…

Alone…

All alone…

I realize they hypnotize…

Throwing magic into my eyes…

Alone…

All alone…

Is synchronicity a possibility?

Is this accidental, or just incidental?

Alone…

All alone…

I must take action, cause a distraction;

I need interaction; I feel I’m in traction…

Alone…

All alone…

I must use my senses, to break down defenses,

and break free from this agony…

Alone…

All alone…

This test will only make me stronger,

And from this mess, I’ll be lost here no longer…

Alone…

All alone…

Oh, I’m just a scarecrow, who’s biding my time…

Trying to find reason, out of the rhyme…

Alone…

All alone…

So lost in a corn maze,

So lost in my mind…

So lost in a corn maze,

So lost to my kind…

Alone…

All alone…

#RDP #74 – Zest

#RDP #74 – Zest

https://ragtagcommunity.wordpress.com/2018/08/13/rdp-74-zest/

***

Today for the RDP challenge, the word is ‘zest’.

What to say about zest?

All I can think of is soap. Zest soap. I might have used it before, but can’t remember. I think the ads they ran on TV and in magazines are to make you feel all zesty or something. Maybe it would give you a burst of energy to lather up with their zesty smelling soap?

###

Oh, there’s the zest you can grate off of a lemon or orange to put in a dish of food you’re cooking. I’ve probably done that a time or two. I don’t go around zesting fruits on a regular basis, though.

###

There is a saltine cracker called Zesta. I’ve probably had those at one time or another, but usually we get another brand. I don’t know why, as saltines by any name are all about the same, aren’t they?

###

~warning~spur of the moment bad poem ahead…

***

Lather up with Zest

Their ads say it’s the best

It gives you a fruity feeling

Orange or lemon zest

It’s easier than peeling

You may say this is crackers, and

Poetry is not for slackers

Pool – 10 Day Photo Challenge – Day 3

https://cassiaelisabeth.wordpress.com/2018/07/01/attention-photography-challenge/#comments

***

The word of this 3rd day of the photo challenge is ‘pool’.

Thanks, Cassia, for hosting this fun photo challenge! 🙂

***

We don’t have a swimming pool, and we don’t go swimming any more, so had to just take a couple of photos of kids pools you can buy at the store. However, whoever designed the boxes should have re-thought how the letters would look. You can barely see the ‘L’, so it just looks like ‘poo’! 🙂  The one with the steps, was from a long time ago when my kids were taking swimming lessons. Also, there is the photo of a slide going into a swimming pool where my grand-son was taking swimming lessons.

And then, there is a pool table. This one was at a VFW, where some relatives of ours were playing a game.  I always enjoyed playing pool, but haven’t in ages.

Share Your World – July 23, 2018

Hey, look! It’s Monday and time for new questions from Cee, and answers from me! Join in the weekly fun, why don’t you. Click the above link to see how, and also see other entries. It’s fun!

***

Cee’s Questions:

In regards to puzzle what’s your choice: jigsaw, crossword, word search, mazes, logic or numeric puzzles, something else, or nothing?

List at least five favorite treats and it doesn’t necessarily have to be food.

What is your favorite type of dog? (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie)

***

My answers:

Puzzles – I love doing puzzles! Mainly jigsaw puzzles, but also crossword puzzles. Then, I sometimes do a word search, or a jumble. Never got into doing the logic puzzles (funny – my daughter and I were just talking about these yesterday!) Math or number puzzles are not for me, though.

***

List 5 treats…

  1. Playing and talking with my grand kids
  2. Having my mister cook me breakfast every morning
  3. Having long, and fun chats with my daughters
  4. Finding good stuff (to me) at yard sales
  5. Any kind of sweets to eat (I like them all)

***

My favorite kind of dogs…

Basset hounds. We’ve had several over the years. They are just big old babies that are funny and loveable. We don’t have any dogs right now – just a cat. We’ve had dogs & cats at the same time, and they all got along great.

What is this?

Take a guess, then I’ll reveal what it is farther below.

Still kind of hard to tell, but there are hundreds of ants all over the shoe insert! They were left outside to dry after getting wet, and for some reason the ants swarmed all over them.
